Nice fish with lots of different vegetables. Only slightly overcooked for my taste. Chicken Piri Piri also good. Generous amount and good housewine. The view lovely. The service very friendly and competent. We will be back.

The restaurant is specialized in fredh fish and seafood and traditional Portuguese fish dishes as Cataplana or Rice with fish or seafood, the both of which I really recommend. It is not cheap, but provides good service and quality food.

We had a really nice lunch here. Sea food was fresh, well prepared, and service was quick and efficient. Very nice views of the ocean from the terrace. Recommended.

We chose the place for the fabulous view overlooking cliffs and sea. One could sit inside or out but in a lovely day inside was empty and outside was 80%full. This did not speed our meal which took nearly 50 minutes to arrive. The food was ok, not memorable. Fairly plain and something we could have cooked at home. We... More

Good, fresh seafood (some of it straight from an aquarium if you want) overlooking the beach and sea. We can vouch for the salt cod and the sardines - well cooked with good garnish.

We went to Mar a Vista for my mother's birthday dinner. It was a very special night, the staff even found us a candel to put in her dessert. I recommend this place for a nice seafood dinner. Excellent fish soup.

They managed to fit our party of 6 in without a booking into an already busy restaurant. Friendly, helpful, good choice of meals and a very acceptable house wine. Thanks for a great evening

Went here twice during our 10 day holiday in Sagres first time we had tuna and squid mains very nice and generous portions. We then went back on our penultimate night and shared a pot of monkfish and prawn rice. Absolutely delicious! Fresh, hot and huge portion, mopped up with bread. A lovely way to spend an evening sitting outside... More
